About the Film

Mehdi Hoseinivand Aalipour’s tender drama centers on a rural Iranian family and their dreams to build a home and a better life. 12-year-old Ebrahim, the film’s soul, is the breadwinner for his five siblings and mother. He works harder than most of the adults around him; picking dates, serving tourists at an eco resort, and tending horses at a nearby ranch. Set against the rich beauty of the desert, Asteroid observes Ebrahim’s wise demeanor amidst moments of childhood joy, and a quiet determination to help others.
